Optimum chilling schemes for a two- or three-stage chilling system were developed using a validated heat and mass transfer model and a pattern search algorithm. The optimization was performed for the ambient temperature during each stage for an air velocity of 0·5 m/s and 90% relative humidity. The experiments were conducted to evaluate the effect of the optimum conditions on beef quality after ageing.
